John 18:1-14, 28-40a; 19:13-25
“I am He.” With these words, Jesus says so much more than what his soon-to-be captors realize. Our journey to maturity starts and ends here. How do we grow in capacity to deal with difficult life-spaces? Where do we go when we lose God’s shalom / peace? Whom do you seek?.
Father, remind me that navigating life’s most difficult places sometimes requires only the simplest of maneuvers – that of sitting at your feet and talking about my emotions and thoughts. Help me to perceive your presence and insight. And listen …. listen as one being taught.
